Multiple Domain allows you having more than one domain in a single WordPress installation. Differently than WordPress Multisite (MU), this plugin doesn't support a different theme or advanced customizations for each domain. It's only intended to enable constant navigation under a different domain than the one you set under WordPress options.
Without this plugin, if you have more than one domain set in your host, when a user access the website from a domain that is not the one defined in WordPress settings, all links will point to the default domain. After installing this plugin, you can set other domains and all links will be updated on the flow to use those domains.
This way, the user navigation will be end-to-end under the same domain.
You can also set an optional base URL. If you want to only a set of URL's to be accessed under a given domain, you can use this restriction.
Follow the steps below to install the plugin:
- Upload the plugin files to the
/wp-content/plugins/multiple-domaindirectory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
- Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' screen in WordPress
- Use the Settings -> General screen to configure your additional domains
Frequently Asked Questions
Does this plugin set extra domains within my host?
No. You have to set additional domains, DNS, and everything else to use this domain.
Can I have a different theme/content/plugins for each domain?
Nope. If you want a complex set up like this, you may be interested in WordPress Multisite. It's delivered with every WordPress installation since 3.0, you can find more info here: https://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network.
There is a way to add domain based logic to my themes?
Absolutely. You can use the
MULTPLE_DOMAIN_DOMAIN constant to get the current domain. Just notice that since this
value is checked against plugin settings, it may not reflect the actual domain in
